Ripchord is free and just might be useful for some.

According to this VST2 is a thing of the past and no VST2 software will be issued anymore. According to wikipedia "In September, 2013, Steinberg discontinued maintenance of the VST 2 SDK. In December, Steinberg stopped distributing the SDK.[9] The higher versions are continued."

The quote is true but misleading and incomplete. Steinburg continued to support VST2 development for 5 years after initially announcing end of life in 2013.

The VST3 standard was first released in January, 2008. The standard is presently up to V3.6.13 +++ Steinburg VST Forum +++

For those that maybe wondering, "What is Ripchord", the heading for the video Mario links to states, "Ripchord is a free midi plugin for creating and remixing midi chord progressions"

And, VST 3 is what allows for multi client ASIO assuming you're using an interface with a true ASIO driver that supports that which most should by now. People post all the time that they run into errors if they're using a program for sound then open another one that also uses sound. ASIO4ALL won't do it unless that's changed lately.

I watched the video. I could see this being very useful for someone who knows music theory enough to construct chords and progressions, but has no facility on keyboard.

Tried to load today. There is a single .vst3 file. Reaper does not see it? Doesn't it need to be a .dll file?

A bit of Google fixed it...

VST3 has a hardcoded path. - I couldn't believe it at first as well.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\VST3 for 32 Bit Plugins and
C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3 for 64 Bit Plugins...

It seems Steinberg had one major goal with VST 3.x: "Annoy the hell out of users, devs and everybody else"...
I think they reached their goal ;-)

Cheers,

Dan, all of my VST3s go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3. I have my DAW looking for VSTs in only three places,i.e. C:\Program Files\Common Files\VST3, C:\Program Files\VSTplugins and C:\Program Files(86)\VSTplugins. Note I have the 86 folder as some 64 bit VSTis insist on going there. I have no 32 bit programs on my music computer. Sometimes I have to redirect them to go where I want them. I find that using this system keeps all of my VSTs in one of three places and not scattered all over my HD. YMMV

I guess I should not be surprised. I seem to recall years ago that this type of stuff was available, but I never seemed to give it much mind. Until now. RipChord is ezypezy. Had it going in minutes in Reaper. I am certain I will find some utility in this type of application. I will look a bit more at the other offerings which Pipeline laid out if I find I need a specific feature which may be available.

thanks guys.

Chordz, https://www.codefn42.com/chordz/ gets points for nice design and unique way of mapping single notes to harmonized chords and scales and also providing extensions within a scale. But the simplicity of Ripchord to design the chords as you want, makes it a keeper.

Actually, I think I will keep both. Had a lot of fun with both today. Next step to make some music with this new feature. grin

A fairly cool idea, and yes, I can see how it has a place in some people's music toolbox.

Got an email from these folks:

Quote:
We're giving one Ripchord user a $25 Amazon gift card every week! .

In case you missed it, we started doing a weekly giveaway a few weeks ago, and it's crazy easy to enter. All you have to do is upload a Ripchord preset and you're in! You can find all the details here: https://trackbout.com/giveaway

So far user dafunk has won 3 weeks in a row, that's $75 bucks y'all, because he's literally the only person uploading presets! https://www.instagram.com/p/B3w72sdHHAs The odds of winning are high right now, get in there!


One guy with the only entries! For three weeks in a row! Have to do something about that. So I just wrote out the chord sequence to Samba Pa Ti for a very modest entry. Kind of fun for a guitar player to go figure out all the piano chord "shapes". Check it out over at the site and you may be a winner.

So the voting is in and the winner is...



But I swear I must have been in the top 3! I think I will have to learn some Demi Lavato tunes to get the attention of the Judges. Still like this free app.
